I've wanted to enter a craftster challenge for a long time, but the entries are always so amazing...This time I actually had an idea, and intended to get it posted early so I wouldn't be intimidated by all of the amazing entries.  That didn't happen, but I'm posting anyway.  I figure it's good to support things you love, and I love Craftster.  And it's nice when marginally talented people post things, along with all of the amazing people, so that we feel OK posting too.

Anyway

I want to make good choices in 2008.  This is a mixed media (sounds so fancy) collage that features some of the things in my life I'm thankful for and the good things that I can do with my time.  The idea is, when I'm feeling like sitting around or eating junk or feeling sad, I can look here for inspiration to do the things that will make me feel better, instead of worse. 

I made a few teeny replicas of crafts I like to do, a little quilted square and a crocheted piece, and there's a picture from a pattern for a little girl's dress.  A picture of my daughter running in a race reminds me to exercise, a flower reminds me to doodle, color, and work outside.  A teeny copy of my weekly chores reminds me I'm happier if I stay up with my work, Bible verses remind me to stay connected.  Pictures of my daughter, my Mom, and my hubby remind my why time is precious.  I re purposed a frame and mat from Goodwill (my favorite store)

I didn't take any pictures while making it, sorry. 

This is scary, but here we go!

I was all excited too - planning on posting early and the such. Then I didn't, and I saw everyone elses entries, and I was almost put off. How could I match to these people!!!

But I entered anyway. Because I wanted my diary, and there was no real reason not top - except for my own shame. But I feel so good being up here with everyone else, and you should be too! You have a wonderful project, and it's all yours!
